    New question here. Pros/cons of choosing another bike

    Heya,


    The situation is this: I'd like to go for the Grand Canyon AL 3.9, but size large is out of stock until September 19-23, so I'm leaning towards the Radon ZR Team 6.0.

    What are the pros/cons of choosing the Radon, other than the Radon is ~711 EUR (shipped), and the Canyon is ~750 EUR (shipped).


    Also, I did look at the VooDoo Bizango, but no shop ships to where I live.


    Have a lovely weekend, y'all!

    Never heard of Canyon or Radon, though perhaps a good bike, you'll never be able to sell it later on because its not very well known or at the least you will get like 20% of what you bought it for. Voodoo on the other hand is known world-wide and I'd buy a used one.

    You're just not familiar with the major European brands that are moving into North America. Canyon is a big company.

    I second this. Canyon's big (no pun) - I thought almost everyone in the US knew about them?
